This is not such a bizarre cross-over as one might imagine for in the 18th century the great Irish musician Turlough O’Carolan, a blind harpist, met the Italian musician Geminiani in Dublin, and through him encountered the music of, yes, guess who, Antonio Vivaldi. So here we have a case of substituting Irish instruments for baroque ones, using baroque instruments to accompany Irish themes, by creating dialogues between Celtic and baroque instruments, or by letting all the musicians improvise. One moment we appear to be listening to a ‘straight’ baroque concerto, then all of a sudden the conventional string continuo/ripieno of the baroque ensemble (Le Orfanelle della Pieta) gives way to celtic musicians playing a jig or reel on anything from a Irish bouzouki to a fiddle. The baroque group consists of three each of first and second violins, one viola, two cellos, a bass and harpsichord while the Irish musicians play Irish fiddle, an Irish flute (like a baroque flute), tin and low whistles, Uileann pipes, Irish bouzouki, mandolins, bodhran, bones, and the Celtic harp (played here with metal strings to resemble its harpsichord counterpart in the other group).

Celtic, Vocal, Easy Listening, Christmas | Label: Legacy Recordings | Release Year: 2014

Released to coincide with the international singing group's 20-city North American tour of the same name (it's also their first ever full-on symphony orchestra tour), 2014's Holiday Symphony finds Celtic Thunder rumbling through a set of Yuletide selections that are delivered with group's usual mix of elegance and orchestral bombast. The 18-track set features an engaging mix of holiday standards like "Away in a Manger," "Carol of the Bells," and "O Come All Ye Faithful," and more eclectic offerings like a cover of the Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" and a lovely rendition of the sacred polyphonic 16th century Latin Christmas carol "Gaudete."

Finnegans Wake is not just the name of James Joyce's baffling and impenetrable work of fiction, but the name adopted by at least a few musical ensembles over the years, not surprisingly a Celtic band based in - somewhat surprisingly after all - Las Vegas (and with "Finnegan's" in the singular possessive form). There is a Finnegans Wake band with no connection to Celtic music or Ireland or the United States, however, and that group is a bit more difficult to pinpoint in terms of both style and geography. As for style, try an avant-prog amalgam of influences including post-Canterbury prog and contemporary classical; as for geography, jump across the Atlantic from Belgium to Brazil (and throw in Germany as well). This Finnegans Wake is decidedly a rather large distance away from Blarney Rock.

Barry Douglas - Celtic Airs
Classical, Celtic | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 72:16 min | 166 MB
Label: Chandos | Tracks: 18 | Rls.date: 2016

With this new volume, Barry Douglas once again weaves a magic web with Celtic tunes that have been handed down from generation to generation. His playing is entwined sometimes with new material composed by his musical companions, internationally renowned for their fearless explorations and interpretations of Scottish music. 'Bíonn cúig insint ar gach scéal agus dhá ghabháil déag ar gach amhrán': there may be five versions of every story but there are twelve interpretations of each song. The old Irish proverb reflects an acknowledgement that each artist makes his or her own of material that has been handed down. The result is a beautiful, wistful celebration of melodic riches. Listen and be entranced.

b. 5 December 1962, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. Whether playing as part of a band or as a solo artist, singer-songwriter Conway always manages to retain his trademark acoustic guitar-based sound. Although from the USA, it was not until Conway began playing with UK-based musicians that he finally began receiving some recognition for his talents. Debuting in 1995 with the album Sounds Like Rain, Conway has issued solo outings on a regular basis with stand-out titles including 1996’s Flying Home and 2001’s Live! He has also released albums with Dan Britton, Chloe Singer and Judith Silver. Although known primarily for his aforementioned acoustic folk style, Conway often manages to break from the expected, and has issued additional albums in a variety of different styles.
